For Families

We are back and can't wait to see you all again!

Join us for our Summer Family Activities: Re-build. It was lovely before and it will be lovely again, just a little bit different.

Click here to find out more about our summer workshops and for our booking page.

Our galleries are open, so why not visit our exhibitions, and join in with our Family Explorer Activities in the gallery .

Watch Artist Sian and Little Artist Aoife, take you through activites to do in the gallery during your visit, there may also be some pupils from Huntingdon Academy helping them out. If you are not able to visit still take a look as there are instructions and downloads so you can do these activities at home.

If you can't make it to us, the Play and Learn Team have lots of activities for you to do this summer, Play & Learn Family Activities at Home and outside!

Some of the activities you can do with everyday objects, however others might require a few art materials. If this is something you would like, you can reserve and pick up a free materials pack from our reception or we can post them out to you. Look out for the free materials listed at the top of the activity.

If you are a little unsure trying activities at home here’s a few tips from our Play and Learn Team who share their thoughts about creating a space for playing and making at home. You can also find out a little bit about them and what they've been up to Getting to know us: Play and Learn Team

You could also take a look at our Virtual Reality tour of past exhibitions and related activites.

We miss seeing all your creative work, so be sure to share your ‘in Gallery, at Home and Outside!’ experience on our social media, at #NCmaking so we can see what amazing ways you have tried our activities. Take a look here to see what we've all been up to. Can you spot your artwork?

We want to see all those lovely smiling faces again! Let's turn those virtual hugs into air hugs!

Share Your Feedback, complete our Family Survey

Working digitally, means we miss all those lovely conversations we would usually have with you, sharing ideas, listening, and seeing how you respond to our workshops.

The survey takes about 10 mins or less to complete and it will really help our team to understand more about what you like doing so we can offer more of what you enjoy. You can fill out our survey by clicking here.

We'd love to hear what you think. Who knows, you could join our team of kid creatives!
